Who Introduced You to LinkedIn?

Do you even remember who sent you the very first invitation to join LinkedIn?

I didn't.

I need some help with "my page"

Ok, I have grown rather fond of meebo and the meebome widget. I found that I can embed the meebome widget in comments, up obviously it disappears after people leave comments for me. I tried seeing if there is a gadget, but no one has create one yet. Does anyone know of a way to have the widget permanently placed on my page? I have placed the widget in my comment section, so that you can see what it is, and if I am on, you can IM me :)

Kevin Wheeler: Why Social Networking and Internet Search are Essential

Tips to building a more powerful practice

Thursday, March 13, 2008 | by Kevin Wheeler

I am sitting in Vermont this morning reading a local newspaper with the headline: "Vermont lost 2,000 jobs last year." But the article does not attribute this to the slowing economy; instead, it attributes it to the aging workforce.

Google's Barbie Doll recruitment approach.

I read an article today by Matt Asay, which makes me wonder if Google are turning to blatant sexual stereotyping to aid their recruiting? Surely not I hear you cry, Google exploiting certain market sectors to get what they want?
